reduce the heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the
cloves, allspice, cinnamon and ginger. Let the mixture stand for 1 hour or
longer. Strain into a bowl and return to the saucepan. Stir in the apple
cider, orange juice and lemon juice. Serve in mugs with a slice of butter
on top and a cinnamon stick.

serving, if desired.
